Bent over row, 4 sets
Wide grip chins, 3 sets
Close grip pull downs, 3 sets,
Low row, 2 sets
Reverse flyes, 4 sets

Barbell shoulder press, 4 sets
Barbell upright row, 4 sets
Lateral raise, 4 sets

And maybe 2 sets of front raises if i'm feeling good to finish.

5km on the treadmill, 3x10 35lbs biceps curl.

That's monday. I'm toning down on "power" training as I want to slot in in the Light heavyweight class by next year.

Over-estimated a lunchtime run - 85 minute run, about 40 mins canal path, 40 mins hilly woodland, 5 mins road. Pretty tired now.

Posting this now so that I have to go tonight and therefore won't have lied to you all!! (First session back after 8-10 weeks)

Back to basics for me...

Squat = 3 x 8
Bench = 3 x 8
Deads = 3 x 8

Probably finish with an ab combo of planks, crunches and side-to-side ankle touch things (crunch position).

Not 100% sure what weights yet, as I say, it's been a while and if anyone can give me a bit of an idea what bench to squat to dead ratio is ideal it'd be much appreciated. i.e. if squat is 80kg, bench should be ?? and dead should be ??

Happy gyming.

Still fked from 4 hours of bouldering on Friday. hehe Saturday morning, I felt like I had been doing 4 hours of horizontal rows and pull ups.

Probably do basic push ups and pull ups later on tonight between bouts of Battlefield 2.

Standard Monday night session:

5 min warm up and stretch
8 mile run
10 min warm down and stretch

ITB has been barking a little the last couple of sessions. Hope I'm not in for another lay-off frown

Presumably you do specific ITB stretches as part of your routine..?

Yeah, every day and before and after running.

My running trainers are past it, which doesn't help, but hopefully it's just a bit of a twinge.

Deadlifts go with legs, much better way of doing it. Cleans get done, but not in a my bulking program at the moment. Use them more in strength and or ripping phases.

ETA I put some abs in there too as I missed them out from my last workout.
